3D Fiber Lashes: Do they really work?

Recently one of my friends joined a direct sales company called Younique. It’s a newer company and they sell products like brushes and mineral makeup like eyeshadow, blush, and a slew of other things. Being a makeup fiend she asked me if I would be interested in testing it out and I said sure. Pretty much everyone I know is in a perpetual state of searching for the worlds best lashes and her company has a product called “3D fiber lashes.“  What the heck, send em over.

I have used similar products with Blinc (which I adore) but I was still unsure what to expect.

The little kit with the lashes arrived in a case with a “transplanting gel” and a “fiber lash”. This part is important…the transplanting gel is NOT mascara. I made the mistake the first few days I used it in thinking the gel was actually mascara and could not figure out the reason my results were not as strong as the advertisements the company made. Using the gel and lashes alone does work and you can wear it that way, but if you want dramatic lashes, you need to pair it up.

Younique 3D Fiber Lashes

Packaged in two separate bottles, the Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers are used together to enhance and magnify your OWN lashes. Watch your lashes transform into something you only dreamed of! A 300% increase in thickness and volume to your lashes while still looking completely real and natural. Potentially “mood-altering” 3D Fiber lashes will quickly become your favorite makeup accessory!

Then I tested it out with mascara on one eye and a light bulb went off.

(this is why you read instructions on things first kids)

  • Left eye (facing the picture) is transplanting gel + fiber lashes
  • Right eye (facing the picture) is my mascara + the fiber lashes

I think the difference is pretty obvious.

Now that I had it all figured out, I used it today with my normal mascara (I wear Lorac Pro) and added the fiber lashes via the wand (I skipped the transplanting gel)  and the results were great!

Application is simple.

Step 1: Apply your mascara

Step 2: Apply Fiber lashes. They go on like mascara with a wand.

(not my shot, this belongs to the company)

 She also sent me some small samples of the mineral makeup.

I want to say that this past year I have tended to shy away from mineral makeup. My son has discovered how to take the lids off and let’s just say mineral makeup is VERY VERY messy when a 2 year old gets a hold of it. I quite literally threw away 15 containers of Bare Essentials just a few weeks ago.

I also find that the little dust particles from the minerals fall on my cheeks during eyelid application and I end up cleaning off more than I put on. That being said, if you do love using mineral makeup, it says that their Pigment Powder is 100% natural, free of chemicals, free of talc, oils and preservatives so I suggest giving it a try. At only $10, the investment is very reasonable.

This is me sampling “curious” and “flirty”.

My final thoughts?

I really like them. In the beginning I thought I was gonna come here and tell y’all that they were just alright and not worth the $29 price tag. Now that I realize you have to put on mascara first, I find them to be really pretty, give a wide dramatic look, and they stay on the entire day (just like regular mascara application).  They are water proof but come off easily in the shower and overall a fantastic product to keep in your makeup kit.

I also recommend using Lorac Pro along side them if you like this look, which you can pick up at Ulta. (Psst, best mascara I have ever worn for dark full lashes)

    Nooo. Natural is better. Nobody likes thick looking clumpy spider eyes. Save your 30 $. The only people that like it is yourself. Nobody else cares what you look like. And I don’t mean that rude. I mean people form opinions about you on how you act and how you treat others. Nobody says…oh your eyelashes are so thick you must be a great person.

  2. Sorry if this posts twice, I’m having issues! So my lashes point down, not up like normal people! Would this product work for my lashes? I would love to be able to not perm them anymore! Thank you so much!

  3. My lashes are average length, however they point down, not up, would this product make them turn up or just weigh them down even more?

  4. I was a real skeptic! But after talking to a friend and her mom who use and love it, I decided to give it a try! I’m so glad I did! I don’t use my regular mascara anymore, unless I want some real dramatic results. I love the way my lashes feel with the 3D fiber mascara!!!

  5. I bought this and the gel that came with it is dry. Therefore when I put the fibers on and put the gel on overtop to seal them, they come off because the gel is dry… the brush pulls all the fibers back off. I have emailed the rep and she is ignoring my emails. Not too happy with Younique so I will be posting my comments whatever I can as this is quite expensive and I would like other people to be aware

    • Mine wasnt dry…that is odd! I know a rep I can send you too?

    • Kris, I am sorry to hear about your experience. I was having a problem with the gel drying to quickly and what I did was add some water to it. I am very picky about my wand it is hard to find the right shaped wand to work on my lashes so what i did was started using my mascara wand. I hope that helps some. Give it another shot. It took me quite a few times before I got it down.

    • It sounds like you used the products out of order. Gel, then fibers

  6. If I dont put mascara on with them my results are not really that great.

  7. I have been using this forms few weeks now and I still cannot perfect it. My lashes stick together and my lash comb does not go through them. The look seems just as dramatic as my regular mascara. I’m hoping I am just doing something wrong because I ordered two out of pure excitement!! I have followed the directions to a tee……..please help!!!!!!

    This product does just what it says it does. I have very blond eyelashes and use waterproof mascara because I have such oily skin that regular mascara gets smudgy by the end of the day. I used my regular mascara and the fiber lashes and they worked great. I was afraid of getting fibers in my eyes because I wear contacts but that hasn’t happened once. I had an online party and earned points toward the purchase of other products. Try them… you will like them.

  9. I want to try this! I’ve never worn false eyelashes (just don’t think I could apply them) and as I get older my lashes aren’t as long or as full as they used to be. :/
